I saw that Countryfile. I like Prince Charles, he likes gardening and horses and seems full of common sense. (That will probably cause some comments!)

Talking of rhubarb - I have a rant.... about ants! Last year they built a nest in my huge rhubarb plant and completely destroyed it. Now I have to start again with a new little rhubarb and it's rarely sold in France, so no rhubarb crumble this year.The ants here make enourmous nests about 1 foot tall.

I'll send a photo when I've potted them all up and the greenhouse is full. But my shelving is a bit Heath Robinson and I'm not as tidy as some on this forum!

Not enough seedlings to be exciting yet, but my plug plants will be coming next week.

There have been so many posts this one is disappearing and also it hasn't been keeping me updated. Haven't had an email about it for a bit, there is a tick in my box! So here is a photo of spring last year to get back in swing. Can't remember if I've sent it before.

Hello Brumbull, so glad you are back. I tried to send you a message to ask you to come back, but it wouldn't accept it. I wrote to Brummie Ben instead as it seemed to me you were friendly.

Pam's garden is incredible. I've seen photos before. NigelCoad's garden is very lovely, seen photos on another thread.

I live in Dordogne, France and I have made a flower garden out of an old farmyard that was a mass of brambles and nettles when we moved to this house 22 years ago. Not the easiest climate as the winters are cold and the summers can be very hot, also there was a drought in 2011 and this winter it's always raining or snowing. We've had to fence the flower garden main bit as the deer came in from the forest and ate all my flowers and roses. I have a veg garden too, quite big, had to fence that as well. Clay and limestone here, but much improved now as loads of manure and compost added over the years. A photo is the easiest way to show you.

 This is spring last year.

Sounds as though it's coming along nicely.

Glad you sound happy in the new job Sue.

Nice to see Figrat in her garden! Deano and Figrat's new beds looking very neat, hope we get pics when they're full of veggies.

Don't know if anyone noticed I said this morning it was as lovely sunny day and I wondered if Spring had sprung? Well, it hasn't. Since then it poured and there was a hailstorm this afternoon. Bother.
